Agnes hugs her school books.

Agnes has been an orphan since she was 4, her older sister Annie, 15, takes care of her. Agnes loves school and never misses it. She is top of her class (out of 70).

“It was important to my parents that we all went to school. We wouldn’t miss school when they were around. My brother Edison wants to be an accountant and Agnes is top of her class (out of 70). They are both quite motivated people they wouldn’t want to miss school, they like it.” .

This year I sold a goat to pay for my school fees this year; I have already paid for two terms. I have also bought enough school uniforms for all of us. I will have to see what happens for the school fees for next term, maybe I will have to sell some maize.”
